In the [[Pokémon world]], [[television]]s are present in most homes. There are also many unique TV shows for a specific region. Televisions appear in both the games and the anime.
+
'''Televisions''' (also abbreviated '''TVs''') are part of the furniture in most houses in the [[Pokémon world]]. They debuted in [[Generation I]], but were merely for decoration until [[Generation III]]. They have also appeared in the [[Pokémon anime]].
   
==Kanto==
+
==In the games==
In [[Kanto]], specifically in Generations {{gen|I}} and {{gen|III}}, all televisions except the one in the living room of the [[Player's House (Kanto)|player's house]] cannot be interacted with. The one that can be interacted with displays a movie.
+
===Generations I and II===
  +
[[File:RBTV.png|thumb|right|Television in {{2v2|Red|Blue}}]]
  +
The TV in the player's house displays a movie. Other televisions in these [[generation]]s were merely for decoration purposes and, unlike later generations, the television is in the middle of the room. Televisions normally appeared in residential houses. The same applies in {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}.

===Generation III===
|-
+
Television returned in {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}, replacing [[Generation II]]'s [[Goldenrod Radio Tower|radio broadcasts]] and served a purpose unlike the Generation I TVs. They were present in most houses in [[Hoenn]], but had a limited function, only showing programs when an event occurs, such as [[Pokémon outbreak|swarming Pokémon]], or when the {{player}} changes a Pokémon's nickname at the [[Name Rater]]. They may also show interviews with the player character, who answers by selecting words from a drop-down list. When a program is airing, the television screen will flash, and will not cease flashing until the program has been watched. If an event has not happened to activate a television program, the screen will remain blank and the phrase "''Mom/Dad might like this program... better get going!''" will be played. The programming is organized by [[Hoenn TV]].

===Teachy TV ===
+
In {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, a key item called the {{DL|List of key items in Generation III|Teachy TV}} is given to the player at the start of the game. It airs the Poké Dude Show, where a character called the [[Primo|Poké Dude]] will instruct the player on basic gameplay elements like how to catch Pokémon and how to battle.
The {{DL|List of key items in Generation III|Teachy TV}}, which exists only in {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, airs the ''Poké Dude Show'', where a character called the [[Primo|Poké Dude]] instructs the player on basic gameplay elements like how to catch Pokémon and how to battle.
 
*Start of the show
 
:''"Hey, all you <sc>Trainers</sc> out there! HELLO, <sc>Trainers!</sc> ……… ……… ……… Come on, let me hear you! HELLO, <sc>Trainers!</sc> It's me, the <sc>Poké Dude</sc>!"''
 
*Before moving to a particular aspect of the show (aside from TMs)
 
:''"All righty, here goes! Keep your eyes glued to the {{tt|super|Battling, status problems, type matchup and catching}}/{{tt|sorta super|Registering items}} <sc>Poké Dude Show</sc>!"''
 
*End of the show
 
:''"Remember, {{tt|<sc>Trainers</sc>,|Not in type matchups part}} a good deed a day brings happiness to stay!"''

:''"Today, the <sc>Poké Dude</sc>'s here to tell you about how you can battle <sc>Pokémon</sc>! Say you're out for a stroll when, suddenly, a wild <sc>Pokémon</sc> appears! It's up to you to smartly use your <sc>Pokémon</sc> and their moves to reduce the opponent's HP to nothing, and claim victory! I'll show you how to do that in person and for sure!"''
 
:''"The speedier of the battlers gets to attack first. It looks like my <sc>{{p|Rattata}}</sc> was faster than the <sc>{{p|Pidgey}}</sc>. The battlers take turns attacking and reducing each other's HP. My <sc>Rattata</sc> reduced the foe's HP to zero, so it wins! The <sc>Pokémon</sc> that took part in the battle get EXP. Points. When a <sc>Pokémon</sc> collects enough EXP. Points, it levels up. Leveling up makes your <sc>Pokémon</sc> stronger than before."''
 
:''"Well, did you get that? Even if your own <sc>Pokémon</sc>'s HP falls to zero, and it becomes unable to battle, not to worry! Just take it to any <sc>Pokémon Center</sc> and heal it!"''

===="What are status problems?"====
 
{| class="expandable"

|-

:''"Today, the <sc>Poké Dude</sc>'s here to tell you about [[Status ailment|status problems]]! Status problems include [[Poison (status ailment)|poisoning]], [[Paralysis (status ailment)|paralysis]], [[Sleep (status ailment)|sleep]], [[Burn (status ailment)|burn]]… There are a couple others, but they really are trouble. Get any one, and your <sc>Pokémon</sc> may become useless in battle. You know, it hurts the <sc>Poké Dude</sc> to see a <sc>Pokémon</sc> suffer… So, what should you do if your <sc>Pokémon</sc> gets a status problem? Well, you've got me to show you!
 
:"''Uh-oh… My <sc>Rattata</sc> has been poisoned… If a <sc>Pokémon</sc> is poisoned, it loses HP steadily. If a <sc>Pokémon</sc> develops a status proble, heal it right away. Using an item on a <sc>Pokémon</sc> uses up one turn, though. Now, it's the {{p|Oddish|opponent's}} turn! Yay! We managed to win!"''
 
:''"Poisoning or paralysis don't go away after a battle. If a <sc>Pokémon</sc> is poisoned, it loses HP even while you're walking. You should heal <sc>Pokémon</sc> of these kinds of problems right away. Use an item, or try to get to a <sc>Pokémon Center</sc> for healing. That wasn't hard, was it? All righty, be seeing you!"''

===="What are type matchups?"====
 
{| class="expandable"

|-
 
|
 
:''"Does everyone know about type matchups? <sc>Pokémon</sc> and their moves all belong to certain types. For example, there are such types as <sc>[[Grass (type)|Grass]]</sc> and <sc>[[Water (type)|Water]]</sc>. You need to consider the type of the move used to attack… And, the type of the <sc>Pokémon</sc> that is hit by that attack. Depending on how those two types match up, the damage can change. You see, it depends n whether the type matchup is good or bad. If you don't know how matchups work, battles will be tough. So, let me demonstrate exactly what I mean. All righty, be seeing you!"''
 
:''"The move <sc>{{m|Bubble}}</sc> is a <sc>Water</sc>-type attack. The targeted <sc>Oddish</sc> is a <sc>Grass</sc>/<sc>[[Poison (type)|Poison]]</sc>-type <sc>Pokémon</sc>. The <sc>Water</sc>-type attack is absorbed by the <sc>Grass</sc>-type <sc>Pokémon</sc>… As a result, the move becomes not very effective, and inflicts only half the usual damage. Uh-oh, this is not good! The <sc>{{m|Absorb}}</sc> attack you just saw is a <sc>Grass</sc>-type move. <sc>{{p|Poliwag}}</sc> is a <sc>Water</sc>-type <sc>Pokémon</sc>. So, <sc>Absorb</sc> becomes super effective, doubling the damage. It's not going to be easy to win with this matchup… Let's try shifting <sc>Pokémon</sc>! Shifting <sc>Pokémon</sc> in and out uses up one turn. Now, it's the opponent's turn. <sc>{{p|Butterfree}}</sc> is a <sc>[[Bug (type)|Bug]]</sc>/<sc>[[Flying (type)|Flying]]</sc>-type <sc>Pokémon</sc>. Against this <sc>Pokémon</sc>, a <sc>Grass</sc>-type attack……inflicts only half the usual damage on a <sc>Bug</sc>-type <sc>Pokémon</sc>… And, it also causes only half the damage on <sc>Flying</sc>-type <sc>Pokémon</sc>. Therefore, <sc>Butterfree</sc>, being a <sc>Bug</sc>/<sc>Flying</sc> <sc>Pokémon</sc>, only takes one quarter of the usual damage. <sc>Oddish</sc> is a <sc>Grass</sc><sc>Poison</sc> <sc>Pokémon</sc>. A <sc>Flying</sc>- or <sc>Psychic</sc>-type attack is super effective against it. One of those types of attacks will inflict double the usual damage. Okay, here we go! Yeah! We won!"''
 
:''"Is it possible to launch an attack that will inflict heavy damage? Does the opposing <sc>Pokémon</sc> pose a threat to your <sc>Pokémon</sc>? Is there any chance that it may have disastrously tough moves? Watch the type matchups to gain the upper hand! All righty, be seeing you! Oh, for the <sc>Cool</sc>-type <sc>Poké Dude</sc>, <sc>Awesome</sc>-type kids like you match up perfectly!"''

:''"When you're trying to catch a <sc>Pokémon</sc>, don't throw any <sc>[[Poké Ball]]s</sc> right away. First, you need to weaken it by reducing its HP. Okay, that should be good enough. But, if it's possible, it would be best if the target has a status problem. For instance, it would be easier to catch if it were asleep or paralyzed. This will make the <sc>Pokémon</sc> a lot easier to catch! Oh, yes. If you paralyze a <sc>Pokémon</sc>, you can't make it fall asleep on top of paralysis. In other words, you can't double up status problems, okay? Okay! Let me throw my <sc>Poké Ball</sc>! Before you throw a <sc>Poké Ball</sc>, consider the condition and the type of <sc>Pokémon</sc>, and pick the kind of <sc>Ball</sc> that would work best."''
 
:''"If your first <sc>Poké Ball</sc>fails to catch the <sc>Pokémon</sc>, don't give up! Keep throwing <sc>Poké Balls</sc>… It's bound to work sometime! All righty, be seeing you!"''

What a convenient world we live in! Open the [[List of key items in Generation III#TM Case|TM <sc>Case</sc>]] and check out the TMs you have. You can check them out in detail, too."''
 
:''"<sc>[[Normal (type)|Normal]]</sc>, <sc>Water</sc>, <sc>Grass</sc>… TMs also come in types. Check the type and teach it to a <sc>Pokémon</sc> that matches up well. For example, <sc>{{m|Water Pulse}}</sc> is suitable for <sc>Water</sc>-type <sc>Pokémon</sc>. <sc>{{m|Bullet Seed}}</sc> is a move that most <sc>Grass</sc>-type <sc>Pokémon</sc> can learn. There's one other thing! Don't just look at the type, read the description, too. It will contain hints about what <sc>Pokémon</sc> might learn the move. For example, take a move like <sc>{{m|Focus Punch}}</sc>. It doesn't sound like anything a bird or fish <sc>Pokémon</sc> can learn. So, try using it on <sc>Pokémon</sc> with arms that can throw punches!"''

I can register it for instant use, and I'll show you how!
 
:''And now, your <sc>Teachy</sc> TV is registered. How do you use it? Well, here's how it works. Once an item in the <sc>Key Items {{tt|Pokcet|misspelling}}</sc> is registered, you can use it by pressing <sc>Select</sc>. So, you've given yourself one-touch access to <sc>Teachy</sc> TV. All it takes for you to see me is pressing one button! That kind of attention is a little embarrasing! All righty, be seeing you!"''

===Generation IV===
There are no television shows in [[Johto]] as they are replaced by [[Goldenrod Radio Tower#Broadcasted programs|radio programs]].
+
[[File:DPTV.png|thumb|right|Television in {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}}]]
  +
In {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}} television screens flash constantly. [[Jubilife TV]] produces many television programs broadcast all around the [[Sinnoh]] region, including the ''Trend Tracker'' show, ''Trainer Research'', and ''Sinnoh Now''. Each program includes information about events happening around Sinnoh, including [[Pokémon outbreak|swarming Pokémon]] and [[weather conditions]] affecting different routes. They may also contain information about the player which is customizable by speaking to a number of {{tc|interviewers}} which can be found scattered around the region. Like in the previous generation, the answers to the interviewers' questions are limited, but more answers can be added by learning [[trendy phrase]]s in [[Snowpoint City]]. At the conclusion of each program, a series of advertisements can be watched.
   
==Hoenn==
+
The events of the main storyline in {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}} are encouraged by a television program, ''The Search for the [[Red Gyarados]]''. Later, at the [[Survival Area]], the player will encounter the cameraman responsible for this story. In {{v2|Platinum}} this person can be found blocking the entrance to Lake Valor hoping to see {{p|Azelf}} before [[Team Galactic]] detonates the Galactic Bomb there.
[[Hoenn]] was the first region to have multiple TV shows available in a single game. However, they only show programs when an event occurs. In that case, they will be flashing. Otherwise, the TV usually displays "''Mom/Dad might like this program... better get going!''"
 
   
===Player's house===
+
There is also a TV in the [[Old Chateau]] which contains a wild {{p|Rotom}} at night (after obtaining the [[National Pokédex]] in Diamond and Pearl, and at any time in Platinum).
The following program only displays on the lower floor. The TV does not flash for this program<!--in Emerald-->.
 
:''There is a movie on TV. Two men are dancing on a big piano keyboard.'' Better get going!
 
   
===[[Gabby and Ty|Gabby]] interviews (''In Search of Trainers'')===
+
===Generation V===
*Subsequent times
+
In {{game|Black and White|s}}, televisions show a variety of different programmes. The type of television shows that are broadcast at any particular instance depend on the in-game time.
:''"Hi! Today I'm visiting an area near <place fought>. We're trying to spot some up-and-coming new talent in the field. Today, we turned our lens on the <sc>Trainer</sc> <player>. There's something about this <sc>Trainer</sc> that piqued our interest. We've battled <player> before, but we can attest that the <sc>Trainer</sc> has most definitely improved from before. I knew we were onto someone special when we spotted this <sc>Trainer</sc>! The best way to determine how strong a <sc>Trainer</sc> is… Well, the fastest way is to battle. And so we began our investigation! … … That's how we ended up in battle with <player>.

The sight of them--<Pokémon at the end> and <second Pokémon at the end>--selflessly supporting each other in the thick of battle… It was a marvelous sight to behold! <finishing move> was the move the <sc>Trainer</sc> used last in our battle. The move <move> is <Pokémon> and <Pokémon>'s sign of friendship!|If none of the player's Pokémon fainted}}/{{tt|Honestly speaking, I thought that I might even be pretty good. While we did end up losing, we did have a hotly contested battle. But if you're struggling against me, you have a ways to go, <player>!|If at least one of player's Pokémon fainted}} After our battle, we asked <player> for a succinct summary. The <sc>Trainer</sc> replied, "<word>." <!--- The dot is in quote!---> <player>'s <sc>Pokémon</sc> <Pokémon> and <Pokémon>… And "<word>"… Mmm! That's deep! There's deep significance behind that quote! It's no surprise--a good <sc>Trainer</sc> has good things to say. That's all for today! See you all again on our next broadcast!"''
 
   
===Name Rater Show===
+
For the first ten minutes of every hour, documentaries and a cartoon focusing on the player character are broadcast. Each program acts as a view of in-game statistics, telling the player how many times he/she has had a Pokémon flee, how much money he/she has spent at shops, how many Trainers and Pokémon he/she has defeated, and so on.
   
==Sinnoh==
+
From ten minutes past to thirty-five minutes past each hour, educational shows are broadcast. These are "The Waving Weaving Walk", which describes various [[Ability|Abilities]]; "Moves for Living", which describes various [[move]]s that are new to the game; and "Watchy the Watchog", which inspects held items that are new to the games.
[[Sinnoh]] introduced news that was always present, along with commercials.
 
   
===Sinnoh News===
+
For the last twenty-five minutes of each hour, other shows such as human interest pieces are broadcast; these include "Eyes on Unova", "Your Pokémon", "Personality Assessment and [[Horoscope]]", "National Gymquirer", and "Unova News". Other programs shown at this time are "{{tt|Koukan|Exchange}} Talk", which teaches {{wp|Japanese language|Japanese}} in the North American games; and "PokéQuiz", which quizzes three kids on the Japanese names of Pokémon. There are even infomercials advertising overpriced items.
==Unova==
 
[[Unova]] introduces more TV shows; however, these TV shows may only be in Unova. The types of shows broadcast depend on the in-game time.
 
   
===x:00–x:09===
+
In {{game|Black 2 and White 2|s}}, all the previous shows are retained, and new shows, such as "The Pokémon Whisperer" and "The Pokémon Live Sports Broadcast" have been added. There are now three different channels the player can select to watch a certain type of show: Celebrity, Battle, and Variety.
During the first ten minutes of the hour, the TV shows are about various statistics about the player, such as how many times he or she has used the move {{m|Struggle}}.

==In the anime==
:''<episode number>: <episode name>''

Television has been present in the anime since [[EP001|the first episode]], where {{Ash}} saw a [[Pokémon League]] battle on television. Ash and {{ashfr|his traveling companions}} have met several television and film producers on their journeys, but televisions remained largely unseen until the {{series|Advanced Generation}}. [[Max]] mentioned watching the [[Silver Conference]] on television when he first meets Ash in ''[[AG003|There's no Place Like Hoenn!]]'', and thus learned a lot about him. Several characters mention watching [[Pokémon Contest]]s and [[Grand Festival]]s on TV, and in ''[[AG126|Saved by the Beldum!]]'' several supporting characters watch Ash's battle on TV. Like in the games, ''[[Sinnoh Now]]'' is broadcast in the Sinnoh region, with host {{si|Rhonda}}.

|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|After You}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |After You is a move filled with the spirit of give and take, where you allow the target to attack right after you do.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |In practical terms, if you see a new dish at a restaurant that you're a little nerous about, you can use this move to make someone else taste it first!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Bestow}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Bestow is a very generous move where you pass an item to the target.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |There's an effective use for this move in everyday life. Sometimes you receive a gift that will clearly cause trouble, right? You can use this move right away to... No, actually, you'd better wait until the person who gave you the gift has left! But then you can use the move to pass your unwanted gift off to someone else.
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Chip Away}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Chip Away is a very persistent move that keeps striking and ignores all of the target's stat changes.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |In everyday life, this move might be handy for winning an argument with a really stubborn person!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Echoed Voice}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Echoed Voice is a very rugged move whose power grows when you use it in successive turns.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |I bet you can think of ways to use this move in everyday life without my help! You know how sometimes you have to tell your kids the same thing over and over before they listen? In this situation, parents, teachers, and friends can all use this move and it will be very effective!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Foul Play}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Foul Play is a move that gets better the more physically strong your opponent is.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |It's a little sneaky, but you can use it in everyday life. For example, if you're terrible at sports, and you're going up against a big, powerful opponent... Well, it might be considered cheating, but it would get the job done!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Guard Split}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Guard Split is a very balanced move that takes the defensive power of both sides and divides it up evenly.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Here's a practical application. If you and a friend get lost in the mountains, you could use this move to share your defenses so you can both withstand the cold. It's a great way to test the dynamics of a relationship!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Hone Claws}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Hone Claws is a very clean move where the user's claws are honed and sharpened.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Ladies could use this move in everyday life. It's liek a super-powered manicure!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Low Sweep}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Low Sweep is a simple but wild move. It's a swift kick to the lower part of the target's legs.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |It can also be handy in everyday life. Just imagine a lady wearing a short skirt, and she has to kick someone... She can use this move without causing any embarrassment to herself.
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Psyshock}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Psyshock is a very indirect move where the user attacks with a psychic wave that takes physical form.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |It can be used effectively in everyday life, too. For example, sometimes you want to practice comedy routines by yourself, right? If you time this move right, you can smack yourself around for some amazing physical comedy!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Quash}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Quash is a fantastically stubborn move that makes the target's move go last.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |As for how to use it in life... If, for example, someone you are dating is about to break up with you... Well, you can see how using this move quickly could exhibit dramatic effects!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Quiver Dance}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Quiver Dance is a beautiful, graceful move that raises the user's Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Speed stats.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |There's an effective use for this move in everyday life. For example, suppose you were invited to your friend's birthday, but you forgot to bring a gift. You could use this move when you arrive at the party, as a distraction... And then it would make you harder to hit if your friend got angry!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Reflect Type}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Reflect Type is a very conformist move that makes your [[type]] match your target's type.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |This works really well if you're spending time with someone and you decide you have nothing in common. Use this move and... Voilà! Instant common ground!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Sky Drop}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Sky Drop is a dramatic move where the target is taken high into the sky and then slammed into the ground.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |There's an effective use for this move in everyday life: Showing off! You could use this move on yourself, right? If you go fluttering up into the sky, you'll impress everyone! It's an extremely dramatic performance! Just brace yourself for the landing...
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Smack Down}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Smack Down is a classic and primitive move where something is thrown at a flying target to bring it to the ground.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |There's an effective use for this move in everyday life. For example, suppose you sent air mail to someone, but then you change your mind and don't want them to read it! You could use this move to knock it down before it gets to them.
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Soak}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Well, Soak is a sloshy move that turns the target into a Water type.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Wondering how you could possibly use this move in everyday life? What if you spilled a drink during an important occasion? If you use this move right, it might not matter at all!
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Synchronoise}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Synchronoise is an exclusive move that only attacks everything of the same type as the user.
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |If a person who has the same personality and characteristics as you shows up at school or work, you could use this move to distinguish yourself.
 
|- align="center"
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |{{m|Venoshock}}
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Venoshock covers the target in a special kind of poisonous liquid. It's a truly spicy move!
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Sometimes, when you're cooking, you dish just needs a little extra pinch of something. Well, you can see how using this move quickly could add a dangerous flavor!

| style="background: #FFF;" |Come on! Of course I haven't!
 
| style="background: #FFF;" |Amazingly, a Pokémon holding the Air Balloon will float up in the air! That means Ground-type moves won't work against it at all! But, the balloon pops if the Pokémon gets hit with an attack, so be careful!

:''Today's one phrase for communication is this:''
 
:''"Where did you find that?"''
 
:''This phrase can be useful whenever you need it!''
 
:''HAI! So this useful phrase goes like this in Japanese!
 
:''"Sore doko de mitsuketano?"''

<br>
 
:''Azusa: OSSU, everybody!''

:''It's time for this week's highly anticpated “KOUKAN TALK!”''
 
:''This is today's phrase:''
 
:''"Where did you come from?"''
 
:''This is handy! You'll want to know where your opponent is from!''
 
:''If you want to say this in Japanese, it's like this!''
 
:''"Doko kara kita no?"''
 
:''Do-ko ka-ra kee-ta no?''
 
:''After that, there's no doubt you'll have fun talking about where you're from! Yeah!''

:''...Recently, on the way back from the Musical, someone said this to me:''
 
:''"Your Pokémon looks different!"''
 
:''"Kawatta Pokémon da ne!"''
 
:''Ka-wa-tah p-kay-mo-n da ne!
 
:''I thought it could be a joke, but when I looked at <player's lead Pokémon>... BIKKURI!''

:''Recently, I met an UTSUKUSHII woman at a party!''
 
:''The second I saw her, I thought I'd seen her before somewhere.''
 
:''But I couldn't remember her name!''
 
:''So, in this situation, I went up to her, and I said this:''
 
:''"Dokoka de atta koto arukke?"
 
:''Do-ko-ka de a ta ko-to a-ru keh?
 
:''It means, "Have we met somewhere?"''
 
:''And what do you think she said to me? "What? I work with you every day. You're not serious, right?"''
 
:''IYA! It was an all-prettied-up Azusa! SHIMATAAAA!''
 
:''So, that's it for today's “KOUKAN TALK!”''
 
:''...I sure hope Azusa will start talking to me again soon!''
 
<br/>
 
:''Azusa: Hello, Minna! It's time for “KOUKAN TALK!”''
 
:''This week's phrase is:''
 
:''"Nice meeting you!"''
 
:''Use this when parting with someone you just met!''
 
:''At time like this, I say:''
 
:''"Shiri aete yokatta!"''
 
:''Shee-ree ah-e-te yo-ka-ta!''
 
:''It's even better when you say this along with a firm handshake!''
 
:''OK, that's it for today!''
 
:''JA NE!''
 
<br/>
 
:''Toru: Hey hey, is everyone explosively GENKI today?!''
 
:''“KOUKAN TALK!” comin' atcha!''
 
:''Today's single phrase for communication is...''
 
:''"Let me see your Pokédex!"
 
:''Trainers are always interested in another Trainer's Pokédex!''
 
:''"Pokémon Zukan misete!"''
 
:''Po-kay-mo-n zu-ka-n mee-say-te!''

<br/>
 
:''Toru: Hey, everyone! How ya doin'?!''
 
:''Ha ha! Whether you're feeling good or bad, it's time for “KOUKAN TALK!”''
 
:''This week's phrase is:''
 
:''"Check out this Pokémon!"''
 
:''This is like telling someone: Hey, have a look at my Pokémon! It's so cool! Wooo! When you want to say that in Japanese, say this!''
 
:''"Kono Pokémon mite!"''
 
:''Ko-no po-kay-mo-n mee-te!''
 
:''With this, you can show off your Pokémon to each other, right?''
 
:''OK, thanks for watching this week! MATA KONDO!''
 
<br/>
 
:''Toru: MINNA, KONNICHIWA! In today's “KOUKAN TALK,”''
 
:''we're going to teach you an aggresive way to proclaim your future victory!''
 
:''"I'm going to win!"''
 
:''"Katsu zo!"'
 
:''Ka-tsu zo!''
 
:''What is important is to emphasize the "zo!" Be aggressive and show where you stand!''
 
:''For example, saying it through clenched teeth would be really cool.''
 
:''You might not even have to battle! Just declare victory like that, and your opponent might get scared and run away!''
 
:''So that's it for today!''
 
:''Let's meet again! JA NE!''

It's built up quite a winning streak with its two hungry hungry heads. That was the Zweilous, Chow, who eats a lot, but not as much as my Zweilous!

Revision as of 22:56, 7 November 2012

This article is about the household appliance. For Secret Base decoration, see TVs.

Televisions (also abbreviated TVs) are part of the furniture in most houses in the Pokémon world. They debuted in Generation I, but were merely for decoration until Generation III. They have also appeared in the Pokémon anime.

In the games

Generations I and II

Television in Red and Blue

The TV in the player's house displays a movie. Other televisions in these generations were merely for decoration purposes and, unlike later generations, the television is in the middle of the room. Televisions normally appeared in residential houses. The same applies in FireRed and LeafGreen.

Generation III

Television returned in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, replacing Generation II's radio broadcasts and served a purpose unlike the Generation I TVs. They were present in most houses in Hoenn, but had a limited function, only showing programs when an event occurs, such as swarming Pokémon, or when the player changes a Pokémon's nickname at the Name Rater. They may also show interviews with the player character, who answers by selecting words from a drop-down list. When a program is airing, the television screen will flash, and will not cease flashing until the program has been watched. If an event has not happened to activate a television program, the screen will remain blank and the phrase "Mom/Dad might like this program... better get going!" will be played. The programming is organized by Hoenn TV.

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, a key item called the Teachy TV is given to the player at the start of the game. It airs the Poké Dude Show, where a character called the Poké Dude will instruct the player on basic gameplay elements like how to catch Pokémon and how to battle.

Generation IV

Television in Diamond and Pearl

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum television screens flash constantly. Jubilife TV produces many television programs broadcast all around the Sinnoh region, including the Trend Tracker show, Trainer Research, and Sinnoh Now. Each program includes information about events happening around Sinnoh, including swarming Pokémon and weather conditions affecting different routes. They may also contain information about the player which is customizable by speaking to a number of interviewers which can be found scattered around the region. Like in the previous generation, the answers to the interviewers' questions are limited, but more answers can be added by learning trendy phrases in Snowpoint City. At the conclusion of each program, a series of advertisements can be watched.

The events of the main storyline in Diamond and Pearl are encouraged by a television program, The Search for the Red Gyarados. Later, at the Survival Area, the player will encounter the cameraman responsible for this story. In Platinum this person can be found blocking the entrance to Lake Valor hoping to see Azelf before Team Galactic detonates the Galactic Bomb there.

There is also a TV in the Old Chateau which contains a wild Rotom at night (after obtaining the National Pokédex in Diamond and Pearl, and at any time in Platinum).

Generation V

In Pokémon Black and White, televisions show a variety of different programmes. The type of television shows that are broadcast at any particular instance depend on the in-game time.

For the first ten minutes of every hour, documentaries and a cartoon focusing on the player character are broadcast. Each program acts as a view of in-game statistics, telling the player how many times he/she has had a Pokémon flee, how much money he/she has spent at shops, how many Trainers and Pokémon he/she has defeated, and so on.

From ten minutes past to thirty-five minutes past each hour, educational shows are broadcast. These are "The Waving Weaving Walk", which describes various Abilities; "Moves for Living", which describes various moves that are new to the game; and "Watchy the Watchog", which inspects held items that are new to the games.

For the last twenty-five minutes of each hour, other shows such as human interest pieces are broadcast; these include "Eyes on Unova", "Your Pokémon", "Personality Assessment and Horoscope", "National Gymquirer", and "Unova News". Other programs shown at this time are "Koukan Talk", which teaches Japanese in the North American games; and "PokéQuiz", which quizzes three kids on the Japanese names of Pokémon. There are even infomercials advertising overpriced items.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, all the previous shows are retained, and new shows, such as "The Pokémon Whisperer" and "The Pokémon Live Sports Broadcast" have been added. There are now three different channels the player can select to watch a certain type of show: Celebrity, Battle, and Variety.

In the anime

Television has been present in the anime since the first episode, where Ash saw a Pokémon League battle on television. Ash and his traveling companions have met several television and film producers on their journeys, but televisions remained largely unseen until the Advanced Generation series. Max mentioned watching the Silver Conference on television when he first meets Ash in There's no Place Like Hoenn!, and thus learned a lot about him. Several characters mention watching Pokémon Contests and Grand Festivals on TV, and in Saved by the Beldum! several supporting characters watch Ash's battle on TV. Like in the games, Sinnoh Now is broadcast in the Sinnoh region, with host Rhonda.

Trivia

  • TVs are wider since the Generation IV games. This may reflect the general trend towards new TVs being widescreen.
  • In Generation IV, only cathode ray tube televisions have been used, as the Generation IV games did not feature plasma or LCD screen televisions, with the exception of the Villa television set. However, in Generation V, these types of televisions became commonplace, replacing cathode ray tube televisions.
